Experience Hewiston Cellar Doors in the heart of Barossa valley. It is only a short drive from the Adelaide Internatioal Airport and the city itself. With contemporary modern decor and a beautiful outdoor area - the Hewiston cellar doors are the perfect get away for the day, along with tasting some of australias most well-know wines. 

"The roots of these vines are so deep that even on the hottest day, while ever y other vine is the Barossa Valley has shut down, The Old Garden's leaves are bright and perky, trackng the sun as if each leaf is a radar. This depth of root system helps provide a wonderful evenness in the wine year and year."

Hewitson Old Garden Mourvedre 2013

Review and Tasting Notes

Eight rows of this rare and unique planting remain to this day at Rowland Flat and produce winemaker Dean Hewitson’s much-lauded single-vineyard table wine bearing the Old Garden name. The vineyard has been hand-tended and dry-farmed by Friedrich Koch and his direct descendants across three centuries.

Medium red with a crimson hue, there are aromas of lifted forest berry, black cherry and orange peel. On the palate there is black cherry, chocolate, mocha, orange and spice; fully integrated tannins.
